PRP utilizes your body’s own platelets to promote healing when injected back into the injured area.
Platelet-Rich-Plasma, or PRP, is a Regenerative Medicine modality that utilizes your body’s natural ability to heal itself. This procedure uses the special chemical signals stored in the platelets of your blood that trigger your body’s healing response. This technique is a quick, minimally uncomfortable procedure that is performed quickly and safely right in the doctor’s office. Some of these procedures may utilize extra imaging techniques such as ultrasound to guide the needle placement. But many do not need any specialized imaging. This regenerative medicine modality is specifically designed to help the body to initiate a healing and repair response targeted to the exact place that you need to be healed. There are many applications for this technique including the repair of muscles, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. In addition, PRP can be combined with other regenerative medicine modalities to bring healing to all sorts of issues including: facial rejuvenation, hair restoration, gential rejuvenation, and many other areas requiring targeted repair and regeneration of tissue.
